I would say stick to dirt tracks,its what they were designed to run on,also saves the cost of finding tyres to work on astro surface.

I was the one running the B4 at the weekend. Phil is spot on as I used Pro-Line Bow-Ties on the rear with Pro-Line ribs up front. M3 compound all round. The Bow-ties were great as I ran them on the SC10 too and actually had problems keeping the front end on the ground on the straight!
Set-up wise I would definitely ditch the blue springs on the dirt. I ran silver all round but green rears would be a tad easier to drive.
As for the rest of the setup check out the Turin/Collegno setups on the CML website as the Coventry dirt track is similar to how that track cut up.

In my opinion, it should be dirt tracks throughout the series

Default Track

Only a suggestion what about a round on the Stoke on Trent
astro track(used on the west mids series)if you need a track in the middle of the country.
I'm going to see the guys who run the track to see if they would be interested
in hosting a one of short course event if I orginised it...that's if any bodys interested...try to do it along the lines of the fantasic coventry event.charity raffle and so on

Great weekend everyone, was great to actually race my SC10 after owning it since release.

A race series sounds like a great plan.


Think you will find a few more 4wd`s being bought soon as well

Well,you would be absolutely welcome to run a meeting at The Nook[i`m sure Gresty would be OK with it],it is astro,but we have been inspired and are talking about some other types of surfaces and extra jumps for the SCT`s,maybe an open crossover.

Plus there is a nice field to camp in and a cozy pub onsite
Good motorway access too.

PS,
I have been racing my Slash against the 1/8 nitro lads at The Nook for the last 8 months on stock tyres,i think pretty much anything will work on astro,it`s much more grippy in the dry and about as slippy as clay in the wet,but obviously loads cleaner.
Anyway,we threw the tyre thing out the window didn`t we

Thanks Gaz/Phil I'll give 'em a go & experiment with the springs.

Hi Chaps,

have been keeping an eye on this thread to guage interest in short course in UK.

We are willing to put an event on if you guys are interested in racing at our venue, really gutted we couldn't make it at the weekend but there are 9 of us racing regular short course and its rapidly growing.

We are A1 racing club, based alongside the A1 near Grantham in Lincolnshire,

We have an astroturf track with some paved and dirt sections for the short course to run on.

We have Strikes and SC10's running on kit tyres and they seem to work very well on the surfaces.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_7z1q0yxtU

the track has had some more sections put in since this vid.

I was thinking of putting an event on August bank holiday weekend for short course if we can get interest then it will happen.

Cheers, Mark.

I really cant get into Short course so it saddens me to say that due to popular demand Kyosho Uk have ordered some SC-R trucks. Thats the competition kit version short course that Tebo and co are running.

Please don't order one and expect me to get excited. I would rather stick a parachute on my buggy.

That has been a problem that has been noticed so we are now trying to get word out and hold some big meetings to attract drivers and get some good use from the track.

Hi Reg, atm there are no rules with the short course class, we originally were going to run out of the box rtr for the indoor winter club meetings but since we all got cheapy Losi's and the motors etc have been dying its pretty much open.

We have been playing with brushless etc, with the grip on the astroturf the front of the trucks needs weighting to get steering!

We want to attract 1/10th buggies too so if you are interested in running buggies or short course then you are more than welcome... of course 1/8th carries on as usual with the regulars.

The sct's are so much fun that we are really keen to be involved and help the scene grow, as commented earlier we have noticed that the rostrum is alive with laughter as there is more body rubbing noise from the track!

I'm pushing for a seperate dirt track on our spare land for the sct's and 1/10th for dry weather so we can accomodate more racing.

Cheers for the comments chaps, i would love to put on a Short Course meeting and invite you all down to our track.

Mark.
